Jackie Chan recently admitted that he paid extra attention in the stunts he did at the Sydney Opera House in Australia due to the fact that he is the first actor to be permitted to shoot a fight scene on top of it.
As reported on Mingpao, the actor, who was given the approval to shoot on the rooftop of the multi-venue performing arts centre for his new movie, “Bleeding Steel”, shared that he knew that it was a great opportunity for his team and that he would regret it if he didn’t design a special stunt for the location.
Nonetheless, filming the stunts also posed several challenges. Said Jackie, “I realised that I will get injured in one way or another due to how narrow the roof was.”
Jackie also stated that he didn’t dare to drink water at all while filming on the said location.
“I wanted to avoid going to the bathroom, which would hinder the shoot since it would take at least half an hour to get off from the roof,” he said.
Now that he has successfully shot a stunt scene at the Sydney Opera House, Jackie said that it is something for him to be proud of.
“Bleeding Steel” comes to cinemas beginning 22 December.
